    Vauhall Cresta PA 59 - I need to know how much its worth! Please, HELP ME?

    I bought this about 4 years ago with the intention of working on it myself. I got this in the condition it's in and paid £4000 at the time. The car is from a friend and he had no idea of its value either - he just wanted it gone. Unfortunately, as time has gone by I have not had the money to start the project and its sad to see such a beautiful car just sitting there. I was told by someone that the body alone on these cars can be sold for around £9,500. This must be a little steep as the car clearly isn't in mint condition. I can assure you the rust you see on it is only surface and has not 'ate' its way through any of the bodywork. It was a project started by someone else but never finished. It has a Jaguar rear axle, Small Block Chevy and a 3-speed in-line gearbox. All the chrome, lights and trim etc. are still with the car but were taken off. The only electrics that need re-wiring are the lights. It's been dry stored in a garage so it hasn't been exposed to the elements. I really need help knowing the TRUE value of this car as I may have someone interested in buying it. V5 present. It will be a shame for it to go and I don't want to end up selling it for far less than it's worth. thanks and PLEASE help me out

    From the rather brief description, and those unflattering photos, I think you would be lucky to see 500 quid

    probarbly about 1000 -1500 as a project with the logbook
    if you could get it running / driving its mot exempt so maybe 2500
    or sell the parts and body seperatly possible 2000
    Caravans are cool

    I think you'll struggle to get even half of your £4000 back.

    I think your friend was laughing all the way to the bank.
    Like others have said, £2000 tops. In it's present condition, and the fact that its messed around with (that's only devalued it ).

    Thanks for the help. This is a huge disapointment so it seems I won't be selling it. Whats the point? I had a proper look at the logbook and yes... Its a 1960's. Its just great. May as well keep it until I can do something with it myself. Just goes to show you know who your friends are?
